Setting up the Job Posting


After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Define the appropriate operational and Master Data elements that set the foundation of the Job Posting.

Setting up the Job Posting

Once the Job Posting source is determined, the actual Job Posting creation begins in the SAP Fieldglass application. The first page within the UI is shown as "Setup", and it is here that the user will populate the master data and baseline parameters for the Contingent procurement request.

The job posting Setup page requires that information such as start and end dates, the site, location, business unit, and cost center be input.

Now that Melanie has selected the Job Posting Template, she can fill out the initial data for the Contingent procurement request.

Potential Candidates

Depending upon the status of some Workers associated with a particular position, a Job Posting may display what’s called the Potential Candidates widget to show Workers who may be available to fill that position.
